"You Talkin' To Me?" Taxi Driver Turns 40

Taxi Driver Turns 40!
l-r Cybill Shepherd, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster and Harvey Keitel
"You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talking... you talking to me? Well I'm the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you're talking to? Oh yeah? OK."

Not being a film critic I don't want to attempt to break down why Taxi Driver is the classic film it is. Suffice it to say it has endured because of it's excellence.

Being a film buff, I knew of it's reputation and was glad for home video technology which is how I was able to see it initially and have seen it many times since.

The quote above is the most known from it.

Directed by the legendary Martin Scorsese Taxi Driver recently celebrated it's 40th Anniversary at the Tribeca Film Festival where the famed filmmaker and his cast consisting of Jodie Foster, Robert De Niro, Cybill Shepherd and Harvey Keitel reunited and posed for the above photograph.

This image is everything and recalls a time in cinema history that was golden.

Have a Super Sunday peeps!
